Does gut health impact good health? (More than you know!)
“You are what you eat” is a common phrase that is commonly misunderstood. It’s more like, “You feel as well as the bacteria in your gut breaks down what you eat and impacts your microbiome.” Not quite as catchy, right?
But the takeaway here is that GI health is directly linked to your well-being. What’s more, poor gut health can mess with sleep[i], your ability to tackle life’s everyday stressors[ii], and a host of other issues.
Why the Key to Good Health is Gut Health
Now, let’s do a refresher on all things gut. We eat; food enters our digestive tract, digest, and excrete. But your 30-foot-long gastrointestinal tract doesn’t get nearly the credit it deserves for its role in your overall health.
It’s a complicated place, connected to organs and filled with trillions (with a T) of microbes that affect many facets of your health, from your immune system to your metabolism and even your mental state. The Human Microbiome Project is studying the wonders around this science. During their research, they discovered that good bacteria is vital – and one of the things these tiny bacteria do to provide health benefits is help our gut!
The National Institutes of Health offer several tips for keeping your gut health in check, including:
- Managing everyday stress through techniques like breathing, mindfulness, healthy diet, and exercise
- Talking with your doctor about supplemental healthful bacteria like probiotics
- Creating a routine and setting a bedtime for your gut, as your GI tract is most active in the morning
- Getting the recommended hours of sleep
If you could find a supplement for men and women that had both probiotics AND other benefits, well, wouldn’t that be divine?
Zenwise® thought the same thing. At the root of its product line is the understanding that the key to good health is gut health. And this can translate to better sleep, focus, stress management, and even beauty from within.
Let’s take a closer look at four multitasking marvels that all feature proven a Reliably Alive™ DE111® spore-forming probiotic that is resistant to environmental factors.
Why is this important to overall gut health? Well, it means that it is guaranteed to arrive alive and work within hours in the small intestine. Importantly, it creates a hospitable gut environment that encourages healthy bacteria to grow. It promotes digestive health and a healthy GI tract, supports regularity, and helps tackle occasional constipation or diarrhea.
Zenwise® pairs this powerhouse with four other commonly requested supplements.
Our premium Mood and Chill Support Blend features clinically studied Sensoril® Ashwagandha, which may help manage normal stress, maintain normal emotional balance, and promote a sense of relaxation and mental alertness. But that’s not all. This supplement also includes a vegan form of Vitamin D (D3 as Cholecalciferol) called VegaDELight, and 5-HTP, a precursor to serotonin. This is the ingredient that helps to promote a healthy mood balance.†
Is there anything better than getting a good night’s sleep? How about getting a good night’s sleep WHILE your digestive system is working well? Zenwise’s calming, non-habit-forming botanical formula is made with CherryPure® Tart Cherry, Valerian Root, and Kiwi Fruit. The goal here is to promote a sense of calm for deep and restful sleep as part of your new sleep habits. And there’s no added melatonin in this formula, either. This unique product also contains Aquamin® Magnesium which may support relaxation and sleep quality.†
Beauty really does come from the inside out – especially when it’s coming from your gut! This formula includes a Beauty From Within Blend, including Organic Broccoli Sprouts Powder, Hyaluronic Acid, and Silica (from Bamboo Extract) to provide antioxidant support. This blend may support skin, nail, and hair health, all while supporting the production of collagen. Joining that team of beauty-boosting power is Dermaval™, a proprietary blend of botanical goodness clinically shown to support healthy elastin levels.†
So, the gut really does impact all of your systems – including your brain. That’s called the enteric nervous system (more commonly called the gut/brain axis), and it connects the gut and brain via neurotransmitters that support feelings and emotions. Our Zenwise Focus Support Blend is focused on that relationship, delivering the gut nourishment with DE111®, Kombucha, and Ginger Root Extract. Then Ashwagandha helps enhance mental stamina and promotes mental clarity and focus.†
